What will you major in/study? Economics

Why did you choose Amherst? “I chose Amherst because it had everything I was looking for in a school. Not only is Amherst’s academics exceptional, but they also play in one of the best lacrosse conferences in the nation (D1, D2, or D3) in the NESCAC. Coach (Jon) Thompson made me feel right at home the moment I stepped on campus, and I look forward to having the ability to play for him.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “This upcoming season I hope that we will be able to make it to Towson University. Last year we came up short after a great season in the quarterfinals against Calvert Hall, but this year I think we have the talent, desire, and leadership necessary to hopefully contend for the MIAA championship.”

Other schools considered: Drexel, Boston U, Richmond

Thank You: “Special thanks to my Dad, the rest of my family, Coach Brocato, and all of my other coaches.”
